    Windows 10 freezes while playing games with Intel integrated graphics

    This happened once in Windows 7 aswell, but after I installed Windows 10 I have had more time to play and this has happened atleast 4 times already. The whole computer freezes and it requires me to do a hard-reset for it to seemingly go back to normal again until I play something.

    Edit: I have downloaded the newest graphics drivers with the Intel(R) Driver Update Utility 2.6
    I also barely have any downloaded programmes on my computer: Spotify, Google Chrome, Discord, Runescape, League of Legends, Intel(R) Driver Update Utility 2.6.

    What games are you playing? Do you have a dedicated graphics card installed?

    I'm almost certain that your integrated graphics on that CPU (Intel HD Graphics 4000) is causing your problems. It just can't handle those games. It may even be over heating a little which could be a serious problem.

    Thank you for the quick reply, if you can you could skim this thread:
    BSOD (playing Runescape) and Win 10 problems - Page 4 - Windows 7 Help Forums
    I have now removed my dedicated graphics card, due to it causing separate problems (possibly motherboard causing this problem and the one in that thread?)
    I play League of Legends and this time after 10 minutes of playing it froze, would the overheating show under CPU temps?

    Edit: While playing RuneScape it happened once in like 1 hour and the other time in 3 hours (on and off playing, but the computer running).
